Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Lake Panasoffkee Lake Panasoffkee Wastewater Facilities Plan Q & A

Q: Why is this meeting happening if we don’t have any wastewater/sewer service in the Lake Panasoffkee area?

A:   The Sumter County Board of Commissioners and the Lake Pan Water Association are interested in helping bring wastewater service to the Lake Pan area and have invited the Florida Governmental Utility Authority (FGUA) to assist.  The FGUA is holding this meeting.

Q: What is the FGUA?

A:   The FGUA is a special governmental agency which provides public water and wastewater services throughout the State of Florida to certain governments which request its assistance.

They are a government authorized by State Law to provide public utility services.  You may learn more about them at www.fgua.com

Q: What other governments and communities do they work with?

A:  They provide service in 15 other county governments including Pasco, Polk, Citrus Lee and Flagler counties, multiple city governments, including the City of Dunnellon, and the federal government, as the FGUA  operates water and sewer service at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa.

Q: Why have this meeting?

A:  The FGUA is pursuing grant and low-cost loan funds from the State of Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) for design and construction and wishes to inform potential customers.

Q: Do we know how much this is going to cost customers?

A:  Not completely yet.  We have preliminary project cost estimates to provide the funding agencies but more specific costs will not be known until final design and how much external (state/federal) funding may be available for the project

Q: Why does this meeting matter? 

The state will want to know we are informing potential customers about the project and the more state and/or federal assistance for the project, the lower local customer costs will be.

Q: Will customers continue to be involved?

Q: The FGUA will continue to provide updates and has set up a special web page to check at www.fgua.com/lakepan

Q: Who can I contact with questions concerning this plan?

A: Customers can submit a question by e-mail to our project team at LakePan@fgua.com.  We will respond as quickly as possible.
